to india and that have to do with a sequence of events that will take place after 2014 when the american focus once again as steve mentioned when the american focus becomes somewhat less the relationship through the counterterrorism and opens the door for the more creative ways of business, academic, a media that have really suffered in the last ten years. so i guess i come out to your question answering that i'm cautiously optimistic if we can keep things on the rail which you know what will happen over the last ten years isn't an easy thing and it's like rolling down the side do would be and you don't know how for the region goes so keeping things on track it isn't easy to keep things on track in pakistan because of the way that it's mismanaged and because of the difficulties in the relationship, but if we are able to do so i think after 2014, there will be a prospect that we could open up to new kinds of cooperation if we are not slaves to a bilateral mission that is based on this trust but if we focus on the multilateral and the regional issues that will ultimately lead to economic g
's relations with india, the issues that have to do with the sequence of events that will take place after 2014 when the american focus once again as steve mentioned, when the american focus becomes somewhat less a relationship through counterterrorism and opens the door for more creative ways of business, academic, media, other links with pakistan that have really suffered in the last 10 years because of our focus on ct pics i guess i come up to your question answering that i'm cautiously optimistic that if we can keep things on the risk in which if you know what happened over the last two years, it's not an easy thing, it was like rolling down the side of her routine with rocks and cactus is and you don't know how far the routine goes. so goes. so what is a keeping things on track, it is not easy to get things on track, pakistan. because of the way it's mismanaged, because of the difficulties in our relationship. but if we're able to do so i think after 2014 there would be a prospect that we can open up the new kind of cooperation, if we are not slaves to a bilateral vision, based on mistrust
with china and establishing new relations with india. he is in every sense the diplomat for year. what we most admire in our unified combatant commanders. so i want to say thank you, bill, to you for doing this and let's turn it over. [applause] >> dr. hamre thank you very much. while we are getting settled here, i will have our panelists, up and get settled into their chairs and order desert. for those of you that nist the chat line, it may be too late.

communication technologies will tie together, and these are quotes, tied together indian in india, chicago and the congo. that speech, newt minow's insights, were inspirational to me when i first read them 20 years ago. and the fact is they helped inform today how the fcc thinks about new communication technologies. because the core messages from that speech are as relevant today as they were 50 years ago. the main difference of course is the primary new communication technology today is different. it's not broadcast tv or cable tv, satellite. it's broadband internet. so let's start with the opportunities around broadband. the benefits already being delivered by wired and wireless broadband are nothing short of extraordinary. we see here at home in the u.s. are it's no exaggeration to say that high speed internet is reshaping the u.s. economy. we can hardly imagine a world without google, facebook, twitter, amazon, wikipedia, without e-mail, texting, or the apple stores people are using to download 100 million apps a day. broadband is also transforming education, enabling distance learning
, an armed supplier, trading partner with india. the russians answer to the f-35 is the t-50 and the russians are selling the t-50 to india. russia doesn't want to renew the 1990cto, the cooperative threat reduction program, an american financed program. they don't trust america anymore saying america shouldn't tell other countries what their moral values should be when newspaper stories prove we're lacking miranda rule values here in the united states. we have a real big problem going on worldwide, and we just have to completely stop and get into peace negotiations and talk about whose trading partners with who. >> the bills were reform, and none of those directly affect foreign policy because, i believe, that we need to clean house and tend to our own problems before we stick our nose into other people's problems, and the only thick that directly affects the war in syria is that you would have to obey the constitution as originally intended and amended and require congress to declare war on any country where we commit troops. >> getting back to the issue of jobs, f-35, and senator sanders t

could talk to you about india in the same way. we have to understand that for muslims, is leam is not just a question of blee, but it's a question of belonging and being the national. what do i mean by that? it's not because as i hear everywhere they practice politics and religion looking at it wrong. the building of the nation states, even by the elites, is leam is embedded nation building of the state. what do i mean by that? it's creating connection between being the national and being the citizen. this didn't come from islamists. what is frame work that was already there. they were there, major debating in tunisia how to remove laws that function people who would say something insulting against the prospect of the religion. this was already there under the regime, and so, again, we have to be very careful, and how we access these events in a more, i'd say, complex picture where instead of looking at islamists, representing secular space, we have to take into account what are the situation of the citizens? what is the situation today that also influence the interaction with
and democratic lawyers. with florida his electoral vote victory is 332-206. bush was 51-48 margin in 2004 india 286 votes and obama was slightly less it appears against 332. i think there is a certain structure of demographic advantage for democrats in the electoral college in this era. democratic voters tend to be clustered into large metropolitan areas and in particular neighborhoods and they give them a craft an initial advantage in the electoral college. president obama got 57% or more of the popular vote in 11 states and the district of columbia and they have 163 electoral votes. romney won 13 states by such margins but they only have 104 electoral votes of basically the democrats have a bigger hunting ground and and a larger base in the electoral college and the mere hunting ground to go find those votes and barack obama into campaigns has been successful with 365 and apparently 332 this time in 303 if he doesn't carry florida. this election cycle has been compared by many people to 2004, the election and re-election of an adnan, and by mobilizing supporters and getting them out. i think
that there wasn't enough security concerns because of the things going on in libya. >> mccain, graham and india yesterday made remarks about u.n. ambassador susan rice. what did they say in what is it mean in context context of the benghazi attacks? >> well, basically what they said is they don't trust her. they said she should have known better that you say five days after the attack but it looks to be a spontaneous response to anti-muslim video. they said she should have known that it is clear, that there is organized element that looks like a terrorist attack in the she served as fondness for obama's political gain to defend the white house. of course that's not what the white house is saying and today in one of the intelligence briefings we heard from a democrat house staffers they are who said the community reaffirmed that information available at the time. she was repeating the information they provided her. >> intelligence committees he mentioned closed-door meetings and not hear from david trias just resigned direct her. what do they want to know from former petraeus? >> are you current
. india is no longer in need of development assistance in burma has come out of its own jurassic park quite recently - this is the product of people coming out of poverty. people from those countries talked to the rickety boats to get away but they don't need any more. this really does save an awful lot above us to the rest of the world. let me talk about the reduced footprint they have the same vivid as well and in our part of the world it's quite irrational reaction. the effect of the 20 or 40 years solid development work, diplomacy, nation building, governments, working with police forces so whether there are some terrible things happening while standing here at the same time you have to half a dozen enormous country is no longer recipients of foreign aid and which i would also like to remind you the world's economic and strategic weight is moving towards. thank you. >> i will take the moderator's prerogative and in on that happy note and give them up side to the other discussions of the normal flow. all the panel and you can senior program space of the program touched on more in g
by risks associated just with rising sea levels. one is diago garcia, a small island south of india, home to a although gist particular hub -- logistic hub. even absent a storm or tsunami, this installation is threatened by intkaeugs for slow -- inundation of slow staepbd did i sea level rise. the norfolk naval base is home to the u.s. atlantic fleet. a "new york times" analysis this past weekend using u.s. geological survey and noaa data showed a five-foot sea level rise would permanently flood portions of that base. the base is at continuing risk from storm surges. by the way, a five-foot sea level rise is now predicted to be a possibility in this century. eglin air force on florida's gulf coast is threatened by storm surge, sea level rise and salt water infiltration. we know -- we know that climate change loads the dice for more and more severe extreme weather. retired brigadier general steven anderson and retired lieutenant general daniel christman used katrina as an example of how extreme weather can cause negative operational impacts to our military. in response to katrina the natio
's the long-term when you think about it. you look at some of the work that is happening in india, for example, to try to attract foreign direct investment, to try to attract more entrepreneur, i'm not sure it's still very early in term of the result. i think for the last three decades, the u.s. has had, you know, historically a very healthy immigration pots -- policy, but in the last decade or so, we have gone the other way. when you think about the number of immigrants that come in and build amazing companies, and created jobs, you know, in the hundreds of thousands, we can't be looking at other markets because i don't think there's the perfect model. i think we need to look back at what was happening in the 1970s. in term of the u.s. in the historical model. we did encourage a lot of immigration. a lot of people came in with science, technology, mathematics background. you look at silicon valley, you see the fruit of a lot of that. >> you had a comment? >> i spent seven years of my life painfully as a member of the commission on immigration reform, which was chairmaned by bosch are a jordan
with some optimism but a relatively close election. but one thing to note is all the votes are not india, and i think by the time we report all vote in california, the west coast states that do a lot of absentee voting, the president's marginal grow a bit and i think we'll end up with a margin between obama and romney about 3.5%. so still close but not racist impose a not as close as we might've been talking about for a good deal of the election. i think of something right about all the model going on. i know a lot of people talked about that. i want to give a little shout out to many political scientist. i'm a political scientist. sometimes i'm critical of some of their models, but political models try to predict what happens in elections and they usually have some very simple components. how the president is doing. the growth in the economy. not the state of the economy. not the number of unemployment at how we've been improving over the are, and incumbents usually accounts or something. if you look at this election you can say a little bit of growth matters. a president who was sort o
included, india starting point, in the foundation and the amount of revenue you would receive if the rate on top earners went back to clinton era levels but it's really important people understand that that was the starting point for the simpson-bowles calculation. that's why they get the deficit reduction numbers that they do. if you actually were to take out that assumption, they are about a trillion dollars short on their own deficit target. so it's a very important piece of their plan, and the president's proposal actually comes in a little bit less on revenue. than simpson-bowles. so look, i think 1.6 trillion is a good target, although less than simpson-bowles, but i think if you look at his overall plan, the president has that right balance spent there's been some democrats have suggested maybe your leverage position would be enhanced if we went over the cliff. what do you think of that? >> well, i don't think we want to go over the cliff. we are trying to avoid going over the cliff. the real issue is whether our republican colleagues are willing to make those tough decisions befor
was instrumental in opening up our opening of our relations with china and establishing new relations with india. he is in every sense the diplomat warrior what we most admire in our uniform, and our combat commander. i want to say thank you to bill, for you, for doing this, and let's turn this over to you. [applause] >> first big step. doctor, think you're much and welcome, ladies and gentlemen. while we are getting settled here, have our panelists come up and get settled into their chairs in order to serve. and for those of you that missed the chat line, it may be too late. [laughter] but then again, i don't think too many in israel are starting. not the same can be said for others in the world. i wanted to begin with first in case you missed the copies of this on the way in, recommended to your reading and perusal and safety john and steve, thanks for inviting me to participate here in this event. i never get into that in a minute what i think is really important. i'd also like to add my voice to the memory of trip to sell, who contributed as he did it so may things, to this effort just befor
. -- india. i'm aware that's critical to long term stability in afghanistan, and if confirmed, i'll be involved in the issue providing military advice as the military leadership works through the diplomatic piece. >> speak to the announcement that pakistan's going to release several low level taliban prisoners at the request of the afghan government. do you think this suggests we can work towards a negotiated settlement, or do you think there's just really no path to deal between the afghan government and the taliban without pakistan? >> senator, i do know that i would absolutely support any resolution to bring a resolution to the conflict in afghanistan and pakistan. the special representative is working hard to effect reconciliation, another partnerships and other organizations. if confirmed, i'll do what i can from a military speer specktive to support efforts for reconciliation. i don't, at this time, have a sense of the probability in the near term, but we look forward to supporting ambassador grossman leading the government in affecting reconciliation. >> general, again, th
a resolution of that relationship between pakistan and afghanistan and india, in ways that might reassure pakistan? >> senator, at this point i don't have insight into what our government is doing to try to work very delicate relationship between pakistan and 80. i'm certainly aware that is going to be critical to regional stability in the long-term and our success in afghanistan, and if confirmed i suspect i will be involved in the issue and have an opportunity to provide military advice as it is for the leadership works to the diplomatic piece. >> speak to the announcement that pakistan is going to release several low-level taliban prisoners at the request of the afghan government. do you think it does suggest we could work towards a negotiated settlement, or do you think that there's just really no path to do between afghan government and the taliban without pakistan's? >> senator, i do know that i would actually support any initiative that would bring a political resolution to the conflict in afghanistan, and i know ambassador grossman, our special representative, is working very hard
here. oh, i'm sorry. yes. >> you talked about foreign competition in china, india, those places kind of getting ahead of us. is the model that we have in place for teaching our kids that was built in the agricultural age really sufficient for the information age? is the curriculum we have in place sufficient to allow them to be inknowers and entrepreneurs? >> now, that's a softball question. [laughter] no, but realistically, you know, i'm trying not to jump out of my shoes on that. look, no. i mean, when we built this educational system, the '93 model, you know, we ended it artificially because of the compromise with farmers so kids could get out of school in enough time to work in farming. summers were off so they could work on the farm. that was why we had that agricultural schedule. when we put that system in place, there were no cars, certainly no planes, there weren't even electric lights. and computers? okay, well, on and on and on. and can the bottom line is we have -- and the bottom line is we have this overallegiance to that system based on nostalgia, you know? so many peopl
